What router bit to duplicate a Colonial Door Stop
#11
  
Hello everyone

I require a bunch of Colonial Door Stop (see Home Depot Example) and thought I could mill my own. For the life of me, I am unable to find the router bit profile online. Pro shops will be using a shaper however, this is a common enough profile that there has to be a bit around to make it. Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Stay safe and healthy out there. Cheers.

I no longer build museums but don't want to change my name. My new job is a lot less stressful. Life is much better.

1/4” shank panel raising bit is a scary thing!

An ogee raised panel bit is what you're looking for.

Not sure how you feel about hand tools but a sash cutter on a Stanley 45 will do the trick.

I agree with AHILL, you need an roman ogee style bit. You could probably do it with part of a stile and rail cutter bit if you wanted something that you could potentially use for other projects.

Thank you all! I will check that router bit and also check out the sash cutter. Thanks again for all your input and insight.

1/2 thumb isn't that a mini raised panel set?
Everything is a prototype so its a one of a kind.

Pretty standard Ogee bit as stated above. If you are making it the same 1-1/4” tall as in the HD listing, the ogee bit would need to be about 3/8” to 1/2” tall.

Infinity Tool has a mini panel raising bit that looks right: https://www.infinitytools.com/mini-door-router-bit-sets

You can run the ogee, then set up the Dado blade in your saw to mill the back relief groove. You certainly want this, it makes setting the molding flat to a not perfect wall much easier.
